Here at the Charles Boyk Law Offices, a Ohio texting and driving car accidents lawyer can represent those injured in car accidents. Texting while driving is the cause of many Ohio auto accidents, and can be fatal. Our office helps those victims that have been seriously injured by a distracted driving accident.
Although texting and driving is very common, it is extremely dangerous, especially among teenagers. Harris Interactive have compiled statistics out of a study they conducted. Their study claims that 57% of teen drivers admit to texting while behind the wheel of a car. No matter the laws that are in place to ban texting and driving and the ensuing consequences, young adults seem to ignore these obvious warning signs and proceed to text.
There are other studies out there stating that distractions like texting are not the only kinds out there. Distractions can come from anything, including non-texting cell phone use (both hands free or handheld).
450,000 vehicle crashes and 5,000 deaths are attributed to distracted driving each year. In 2009, 16% of fatal crashes involved reports of distracted driving according to the NHTSA. It has been found that someone who is texting and driving is 23 times more likely to crash.
